'Expanding the Scope of Jurisdiction of Law of the Sea Tribunals' Dr Kate Parlett's Ocean Development and International Law Paper Published

This is an archived article, and some links may not work. Contact us if you have any questions.

Dr Kate Parlett’s article on jurisdiction of law of the sea tribunals has been published in the journal Ocean Development and International Law.

In several recent Awards, Part XV tribunals constituted under the UN Convention on the Law of the Sea have been called upon to decide claims based on rights and obligations that find their source in a treaty, agreement, or otherwise binding instrument other than the Convention itself, or on customary international law. This article considers the extent to which such claims fall properly within the jurisdiction of a Part XV tribunal, either on the basis of the applicable law provision in Article 293(1) of the Convention, or on the basis of provisions of the Convention that make reference to other relevant rights and obligations.

Kate’s article explores these recent decisions and the proper scope of jurisdiction of tribunals constituted under Part XV of UNCLOS.

This link is to the Accepted Manuscript of the article published by Taylor & Francis in Ocean Development and International Law on 23 June 2017, available online.
